    How can I make my form have a fluid/dynamic height?

    Asked by ajkreiss on March 07, 2012 at 05:50 PM

    We have several forms on our sites that use conditions, and therefore have variable heights.

    At one point, our forms had fluid height, so that the size of the page increased as more conditions were revealed.  Now, the forms have a set height, with a large blank space at the bottom of the form.  Is there any way to get the dynamic height back?  It looked so classy!

    You can see an example here: https://innerecology.com/practitioners/practitioner-registration/.

    Our site is wordpress, and I used the wordpress embed script.

    I will forward this issue to the developers to see if anything can be done about it.

    Any update on the dynamic height?  It was working at one point, but not now.  Is there another embed type that might make this work?

    This issue is assigned to one of JotForm Developers, and marked as Important one. We will update this thread once we get any more information for you.

    In the meantime, you can use the Source Code embedding method which is not affected with the bug.

    Thank you for your patience in this matter.

    If you are using Joomla and have to use an iFrame, I am afraid you wont be able to avail of that fluid height that normal embed code offers.

    Sorry, boerenooi, there really isnt much we can do for you in this instance, we are restricted by the limits imposed by using Joomla.

    Ok I found a solution for this. Here goes!

    Use jce mediabox and use the url of your form with the jcepopup class. It's not IN the body, but it's lightbox and fluid. 


    Hope this helps. :)
